The Royal Abbey of Eleanor of Aquitaine In the heart of a Small City of Character, the abbey of Nieul-sur-l'Autise is an architectural gem of exceptional quality, highlighted and managed by the department of the Vendée. Founded in 1068, the abbey was granted the status of royal abbey in 1141 by Aliénor of Aquitaine, then Queen of France. The abbey retains one of the few almost intact Poitevin monastic ensembles with its three elements including the only Western Romanesque cloister preserved in its entirety. A millenary abbey at the forefront of technology Embark on a virtual tour of the abbey and discover the monastic life in the 12th century through touch screens, a museum tour on Romanesque sculpture and a medieval instrumentarium. In summer: shows about the history of the abbey, fun route and costumed tours. All year long: activities and children's activities, adventure books.
